A thief broke into my home and stole all my jewelry. This jewelry was not just pieces of metal. It was 54 years of marriage, family and friends. Among the things that were stolen were the wedding rings my late husband, Glenn, gave me. There was also a jade ring that belonged to my late sister-in-law. The thief may think he got away with the crime, but he (or she) will be caught sooner or later. Also, there is a God who said, “Do not steal,” so the thief will answer to Him. My special thanks to police officers, Chase Broach and Todd Davis, who are investigating the robbery.

What comes to mind when you ponder a 2.4 mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile run? Pain, maybe? Or you might ask, "Why?" For triathletes Danny and Libby Barnes, owners of Nicholasville's The Alternative Jewelry Shop on Main Street, pain is a factor, but it's not enough to stop the couple from doing what they love. "It's very addictive," 40-year-old Libby said. Her husband, 43-year-old Danny, added, "We just eased into it. We couldn't swim 25 yards seven years ago, now we can swim 2.4 miles.

Sometimes it's hard to find jewelry to match your outfit for the day or evening, especially when you want something nice and shiny. Many of us do not do regular cleaning to make jewelry shine like when it is new. We find ourselves hurriedly running to the sink to rinse a ring or earrings when they appear dull. We finish the task by drying them off. However, regular cleaning takes only a little time and it can keep the jewels looking fresh and sparkling all the time. Simple household cleaners like toothpaste and dishwashing liquid can be used, but stay away from boiling water and harsh chemicals such as chlorine.
